  • Death and Co cocktail. S&C is super funky but it kind of works in this drink, especially once it dilutes. — ★★★
  • Quite tasty — ★★★★
  • Superb! Balanced and tasty. Made with OFTD plantation rhum. — ★★★★★
  • 12/29/16: Good, might still need to warm up to S&C. Improved as it sat on ice a bit. — ★★★
  • Rated 4.5 by nine people — ★★★★★
  • A worthy variant. The afterburn of the overproof rum is countered nicely by the desserty finish of the Carpano Antica. — ★★★★

<br />What a drink! Incredible in taste, and easy going down. I've imbibed the traditional Negroni, and I can't count all of its variations I've swallowed. Most were either good or very good. But this one is the best of them all. Even though the Smith & Cross rum is overproofed, it blends unbelieveabley well with the Campari and Vermouth. For the vermouth I used Vya sweet, a topshelf vermouth I have been using for years. I have the Carpano, and I will be using it the next time I make a Kingston Negroni--which will be within 8 hours. For those looking for a new mixology adventure, this is the one to take. Enjoy!
